Review:

This is something on the periphery of our stream - really belongs more in classical jazz than asian massive but hey what the heck. It's an Asian (in the American sense of the word not the British) woman and there are flutes and tablas thrown in a few places - so why not.

Review:

Here is an old but great one for the Asian Massive/Drum n Bass lovers. Straight up Arabic/South Asian melodies/beats have been fused, almost flawlessly, to provide us with this album. Move graciously to some hard hitting drum n bass in most of the album. You, pretty much can play the entire album without issue.

Review:

After the, at least for me, relatively unsatisfying last album "Community Music" from 2000, here's the new ADF album, complete with a new line up. MC Deedar has really left the boat, leaving us forever guessing what this album would have sounded like with him. Instead, we now have two new rappers: Spex and Aktavatar, originally from Invasian but - now full fledged ADF members.

Percussionist Cyber also joins ADF, with drummer Rocky Singh; this is a great addition because ADF's live performances have always lacked some percussive elements and movement. On this album there's also a lot of well-known and less known guest musicians; we'll get to that, track by track:

Review:

Kenz Desai of Bootlegged fame, which he released under Ishq Records and the guidance of Bally Sagoo, has left those days behind (hopefully completely) and provided us with an album with a new direction and goal in mind. Inspired by, a new American-made South Asian film, Yogita, Kenz shows us his capabilities outside of pop and bhangra remixes and honestly speaking, pleasantly surprises. (Definitely surpassed my expectations.)

Review:

Drum n Bass lines melded with a comprehensive look at world music (mainly Arabic beats and the Oud) presented in a fashion that comes off as belonging, as much in World Beat Asia as out of it.
